Opportunities to visit us
Prospective parents and students are welcome to make an appointment to visit on any normal school day. We also hold three open days during the school year. Dates for 2018-19 are:
Thursday 20 September 2018: Boarding (2.30pm-4.30pm) and Day School (4.30pm – 7.30-pm)
Thursday 8 November 2018: Boarding (4.30pm – 6.30pm) & Sixth Form (7.00pm – 9.00pm)
Saturday 2 February 2019: Boarding Only (10.30am – 12.30pm)
Boarding Open Morning
Saturday 2 February 2019
10.30am – 12.30pm
Generally parents start to explore boarding options several years in advance of their child needing a place. As demand exceeds availability, we would encourage parents to visit us well in advance of a required starting date in order to ensure consideration for a place.
If you would like to visit us on 2 February to discuss boarding at Burford, please contact the Boarding Department on 01993 823283.
Visits on a normal working day
Parents and students are also welcome to visit on any working day by prior arrangement. We believe that seeing the school in action is an excellent way to get a feel for the ethos, attitude and atmosphere here at Burford. You will be taken around the school by a member of staff or one of the senior Sixth Form giving you plenty of time to ask any questions.
Visiting the school and the boarding department
If you are considering a boarding place and would like to visit on a day other than our Open Days then the procedure is to visit the Day School before going on to Boarding, which is sited in the middle of Burford. Your visits can both take place on the same day. Please see the instructions on making an appointment under Boarding or make a request to visit using the contact form.
